Oh, I think it will definitely recoup its losses when all is said and done in the home entertainment market.

But I don't think it will even break even with its 180 million dollar budget in its theatrical run, let alone make WB any profit.

Isn't the budget $300 mil with marketing and merch?

And who would you guys want to be involved if Raimi and Co. leave? ...Besides Emile Hirsch, Lance.

Just an entirely new cast and crew aside from Jameson and Howard's Gwen Stacy who should replace MJ altogether in the plot.

I think they've gotta go Batman Forever on it and re-boot. Hopefully it won't suck as badly.

It would be great if Marvel can get back the rights and put Spidey in the whole Avengers series they're tryin' to do.

Well, we aint gonna see a reboot, if this story is true. But it certainly wouldn't kill me to just change everything up mid-series.

An easy two-villain combo would be The Lizard and Kraven.

And I've been playin' Marvel Ultimate Alliance on the 360 this weekend... the possibilities for awesome Marvel flicks are endless.

Other really random movie thing:

I was watching The Matrix: Revolutions - Revisited DVD earlier, and they were discussing the miniatures and models used for the Zion siege sequence, and who else is in the frame working on stuff but good old Adam Savage, before his Discovery Channel fame of busting myths, still a lowly visual effects peon.

I enjoyed Moulin Rouge way more than I expected, maybe I'll like this one, too.

Hugh Jackman always delivers the goods, too.

Really digging the Good, Bad and Ugly references, in the couple of scenes with Jackman, and the initial parts of the score. Very nice.

Baz Luhrmann's Australia > Axver's Australia.

I want to say this:

I just watched the Fountain recently, and, then went and read like 4-5 reviews on it, and, so help me, every single review totally missed what seems to me to be something quite obvious about the three different "stories". I'll not say it here cos I guess it'd be a spolier, but, wow, were they either lazy or just oblivious. And understanding what it is I think that they missed would have provided them with some clarity and lessened confusion and perhaps enhanced their opinion of the film.

The Fountain got WAY too much shit. We could use more films that try to do something different.

It's one I've planned on rewatching for some time now.

And that Australia looks AMAZING. It will be nice to see Jackman get the recognition he's come close to getting but never really has, and I mean that from an awards and popularity standpoint. Good for him that Russell Crowe dropped out, even if the former may be a better actor.

I liked the Fountain a lot, and wonder what would have been had the budget not been slashed in half. I admired the scope.

I just cannot understand how one could watch that film, especially in a professional capacity, and totally misunderstand what two of the three parts really are.

I remember watching Jackman on Inside the Actor's Studio and being really impressed with him. I look forward to this film.
